HOW TO KNIT: QUICK AND EASY MESSY BUN HAT



Sharing buttons:

hi guys welcome back to my channel today

I'm going to be showing you how to knit

your very own messy bun beanie this

pattern is extremely beginner friendly

it just uses the most basic knit

stitches purl stitches and the most

basic techniques so if you're pretty new

to knitting you'll probably be able to

make this hat it's super cute and enjoy

my little tiny bun for my short hair but

if you want to find the written pattern

for this just check out my blog that I

have linked down below I have the

written pattern on there

for it as well as most of my tutorials

and if you decide to make this hat

pattern yourself be sure to tag me on

instagram at lunar nets by laurie same

way is here on youtube and you might

have a chance to be featured so if you

want to see how to create your very own

messy bun beanie just keep watching so

what you'll need to create your very own

messy bun beanie is a weight 6 yarn a

super bulky this is in loosen threads

Kaleidoscope and it's in the colorway

amethyst i don't believe that they sell

this yarn anymore so just find yourself

a lightweight 6 yarn i wouldn't even say

that this is a weight 6 i classify it as

more of a weight 5 so if you have a

weight 5 yarn laying around I think that

would be your best bet and this is about

77 yards you don't need the entire thing

of it so I'd say about 60 yards you'll

be safe to make an adult size beanie

then you will need nine millimeter 16

inch circular knitting needles you'll

want a pair of scissors you'll also want

to tapestry needle to weave in any ends

and a stitch marker to mark the

beginning of your round so we're gonna

be creating in adult size beanie so

we're going to go ahead and start with a

slipknot and using the longtail cast on

method we are going to cast on 44

stitches so just go ahead and cast on

your 44 stitches now if you want to

adjust the sizing of this hat it's

fairly simple you'll just add or

subtract a total of four stitches you

have to do this in multiples of four

just because of the pattern in the

ribbing here it's a two by two ribbing

and

needs to be done and stitches or four so

just go ahead and add four or take four

away depending on the size that you're

wanting but for this sizing I'm going to

go ahead and cast on 44

so I've casted out my 44 stitches and

I'm going to just place my ring there

for my stitch marker the other ones the

loop is a little too small for these

needles but regardless we're gonna go

ahead and create our two by two ribbing

so we're going to knit the first two

stitches so you'll just insert your

needle from front to back and wrap

around now you want to make sure your

stitches are not twisted before you

start this step or you'll have a twisted

brim and that's not going to be fun

later on

so we've knit our first two stitches and

we're gonna purl our second two so we'll

take our needle insert it from this side

like so and wrap and purl again and then

we're gonna do two more knit stitches

and this is how we're gonna create that

two by two ribbing on the bottom we're

gonna go ahead and continue the two by

two knit two purl two ribbing for a

total of seven rounds so we get a nice

brim for our Hat so go ahead and

continue this pattern until you have

seven rounds of ribbing alright so I

finished my seven rows of ribbing and I

am ready to start the first section of

my hat so this section right here

the first Ridge if you will so to create

that Ridge you're going to purl every

stitch in the round and you're gonna do

that for a total of three rounds

so purl all the stitches for three

rounds and you do that just by inserting

your needle like so and wrapping around

the top and pulling through and off so

just do that for a total of three rounds

and then I'll come back to you and show

you the next section okay so I finished

my first Ridge here it's my first three

rounds of purling to create that first

Ridge and now we're gonna work on this

valley here so the valley just consists

of three rounds of knitting so we're

gonna slip our marker and we're going to

knit for three rounds so you insert your

hook front or your needle from front to

back like so

and rap and you'll just do this for a

total of three rounds and then once you

do three rounds you're going to create

another Ridge so another three rows of

pearline so after you create your Valley

here go ahead and create three more

rounds of purling and then three more

rounds of knitting so you have you'll

have two ridges and two valleys and then

I'll come back to you and show you what

we do from there so I just finished

creating my valley my Ridge and then my

other valleys so we have a total of two

Ridge sections and two valley sections

create it by a series of pearls and

knits but now we're going to go ahead

and continue on and create this Ridge

section right here so to start the first

section you're just going to purl every

stitch of the next round so we're just

going to continue on purling like we

would normally to create a Ridge okay so

I just pearled around and I'm back at

the beginning and now we're going to

work a decrease round so you're going to

start by purling the first two stitches

like normal and then we're going to purl

the next two stitches together so we're

just going to go through both stitches

and purl them and then you're going to

purl the next two stitches as normal and

then you're gonna purl the next two

stitches together so we're gonna

continue this pattern all the way around

purling two stitches and then purling

two stitches together and this is going

to help decrease our hat and I'll come

back to you whenever I've completed that

round okay so I just completed my

decrease round and I ended on a purl two

together like you should we're going to

continue on to the next round of the

ridge so we're just going to continue by

purling every single stitch of this

round so just go around and purl like

normal alright I finished that final

round of purling and we're going to

continue on to our final Valley round so

for that we're going to go ahead and

knit every stitch around until you get

back to the beginning

so just like normal knit all of your

stitches I've knit my way back around to

the beginning and now I'm going to

create another decrease round so for

that I'm going to knit one stitch and

then knit two stitches together so

you're gonna knit one stitch knit two

stitches together so you'll do that by

just going through two stitches and

creating a normal knit stitch so you'll

continue this pattern all the way around

knitting one stitch and then knitting

the next two stitches together

alright so I finished that decrease

round ending with a knit two stitches

together like you should I'm going to

slip my marker and I'm going to finish

off the last of the valley sections so

I'm going to knit every single stitch

around now at this point you'll see that

your stitches are getting kind of tight

so if you want to switch to double

pointed needles now would be a good time

to do that I'm more of a just kind of

make it work kind of go so I'll admit

until I can't possibly knit anymore

but I'm going to go ahead and all the

stitches in this round and then I'll

come back to you for the final ridge

round okay so we finished our final

Valley section and now we're going to

start on the very final section which is

going to be a ridge section and to do

that we are going to go ahead and purl

every single stitch of this round just

like normal so purl all your stitches

right so I've curled every stitch and

now I'm going to do another decrease

round but I just wanted to show you the

top of this hat and show you how large

the hole is just in case you want a

larger hole this section will kind of

change a little bit this is how big the

hole is for this beanie I kind of like a

smaller hole I do have shorter hair but

if you want a larger hole I will tell

you how to modify that in this section

right here so if you want a smaller hole

like this hat has you're going to

decrease on this round if you want a

larger hole you will skip the decreases

and just purl every single stitch around

but for the smaller hole like I'm going

to create you're going to do another

decrease round so you will purl two and

then purl two stitches together like

weed

before so purl two and purl two stitches

together so your stitches will get

pretty tight now if you are decreasing

again so again you could switch to

double pointed needles if you feel

comfortable more comfortable doing that

I'm not going to but you definitely can

and again if you do not want the smaller

hole and you want a bit of a larger hole

for your beanie go ahead and just purl

every single stitch and don't worry

about decreasing any but if you're gonna

make the smaller hole you'll just purl

two and then purl the two stitches

together so I finished the very last

decrease round and now we're going to do

the very last round before we bind off

so you'll just purl all the stitches

around until you get back to your stitch

marker so just go ahead and purl all

your stitches so that finishes up your

last Ridge section so I'm gonna go ahead

and slip my marker off of there and put

it back on my finger so we don't lose it

and we are going to finish off our hat

so to do so you're just going to do a

basic bind off but you want to make sure

that you keep it kind of loose so I'll

go ahead and knit the first stitch and

I'll do that a little bit looser than I

normally would I will knit the second

stitch and then I will pass over the

first stitch over the second stitch

making sure to keep it loose like I said

and then we'll knit the next stitch and

we'll keep doing that pass it over knit

the next stitch pass it over and just do

your typical bind off if you want to do

a stretchy or bind off you're more than

welcome to but I just like the basic

bind off and I just keep it loose so I'm

gonna go ahead and finish casting off

and I'll show you the finished product

all right so I just bind it off all my

stitches and now I'm going to insert my

needle into the first stitch there and

just connect the two ends so it looks a

little bit nicer and I'll just treat

that as if it's another bind off stitch

and then I'm going to cut my yarn

leaving a tail for weaving and finish

that off there and so you have your hole

in the top and there you have your messy

bun beanie so these will look a little

small whenever

you are finished with them but that's

the design that it is it's meant to

stretch a lot so with the ridges in the

valleys it makes it shrink but once you

put it on it really stretches out and

same with the two by two ribbing it's a

very stretchy ribbon so don't be alarmed

if your hat comes out looking a little

small it'll probably still fit but again

just remember you can adjust the sizing

by adding or subtracting four stitches

and I just wanted to show you about how

much you are and I have left from the

skein this was a full skein so it

doesn't take very much yarn at all like

I said this is 77 yards and I have this

much remaining so I really hope you guys

enjoyed today's tutorial for this knit

messy bun beanie and if you have any

questions or any requests leave a

comment down below in the comment

section be sure to give this video a

thumbs up and subscribe to my channel

for more videos and I'll see you guys

later bye hey I came to help but I

thought it would be fun to include how I

put on my messy bun beanies just because

why the heck not so I just put my hair

up in a messy bun as best as I could

I have pretty short hair so it all falls

down but I like to pull out some

sections here just so it doesn't look

like I'm bald when I wear my hats and I

just take my bun hat and I stick my hand

through the hole and grab my bun and

pull it through and then I just take the

rest of the hat and I pull it on like

normal and there you go you just adjust

it accordingly and get your bun as messy

as you would like and there you have it

it's as easy as that to put on one of

your messy bun beanies and I hope you

guys enjoyed thanks for watching bye
